Back Alley Bikes is a 501(c)3 non-profit community bike shop, which has been operating in the Cass Corridor since 1999. Our mission is to provide cycling education and services with a focus on youth development, sustainable practices and community access.
We work to achieve this mission by offering a variety of educational programs, volunteer training & opportunities, as well as rides and other types of support related to cycling education, materials, and resources.
Back Alley Bikes is funded in many ways, but our main fundraiser is our retail shop The Hub of Detroit. The Hub refurbishes and sells a portion of our used bike donations, and 100% of the proceeds from those sales and used part sales benefit Back Alley Bikes, and are used to fund our programs.
